Lovers of heat, these tough and drought resistant Mint family relatives guarantee terminal spikes adorned with brightly colored, tubular flowers just about all summer long. Agastaches are easily grown in well drained soils, and will bloom more profusely, over an even longer period of time, if the flowering stems are cut back in midseason.
AVAILABLE SPRING 2019
This tall eye-catching Agastache is celebrated for its whorled, Salvia-like floral spikes that ignite a long lasting fiery kaleidoscope of color. Splashed with copper, coral, pink and red hues, the sweetly fragrant tubular blooms populate numerous erect leafy stems, rising above mint-scented gray-green foliage. Parented by Agastache coccinea and Agastache rupestris and hybridized by Richard Dufresne, ‘Firebird’ blooms exuberantly, tempts butterflies and hummingbirds, and flavors herbal teas.
Blooms June – October.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
